Displays are known to pack in or should I say the pixels go but they can be fixed for around £100-£150.

Steering could be power steering pump or fluid or even worse the rack but check for play and any loss of fluid.

Well engine wise you have a MTM tuned car so I would ask what’s been done and if it been serviced regularly and ask how old the turbo's are as this can be a very expensive repair if they need replacing so a 150k miles on stock turbo's could be putting near end of life. Turbo replacements are not cheap and you would need to replace both Turbo's and that means engine out job.

i think that turbos are ok,there is no strange sounds,and motor works very nice.
service is done before 10000 km,belts,filters,oil...
the car is very nice,u can see that car on this clip vs ferarri modena.
